(using Python and the Flask Library)

An oAuth integration allows you to have an application "do stuff on your behalf".

This is a topic that can be quite complex to understand. For that reason I created this Python code to make it as easy as possible to understand.

What happens in when you run this code?

Step 1

First you open the application that can only say "hello world". Click the authenticate link.

Step 2

 

 

After successful authentication on the Webex platform (with or without SSO integration), you have to confirm that application XYZ is allowed to do things on your behalf.

 

Step 3

Now the application can, on your behalf, get your details (name, email address, etc).

 

How does oAuth work?

Here's a single slide that I created as part of an extensive oAuth presentation. (Let me know if I should publish that presentation on Youtube!)

Now go ahead and look at the instructions / code and try to make it work.

Details, code & setup on Github

QUESTION: Should I publish my oAuth explanation videos on Youtube?

Just leave a comment.
